Counselor Suite Interviews


Ms. Jackson:

1)What exactly do you do?

My job is to help students find their greatest level of success. I help 6th graders make transition as easy as possible.

2)How can students reach you for help?

They can tell a teacher they need to go to the counselor's office and get a pass. That's the best way.

3)What is your favorite part of being a counselor?

Probably getting to work with students one-on-one.

4)What do you do when you're not doing your counselor activities?

When I'm not working with students one-on-one, I'm either doing classroom guidance, parent/teacher conferences, consulting with other staff members, or testing.
